House Republicans Make a Commitment to America

I stood on the steps of the US Capitol with 367 other Republican congressional candidates. It was September 27, 1994, and I was the GOP nominee for Iowa’s Fourth Congressional District. We gave speeches, waved flags and signed the treaty with America. It was a big media event because nobody had done it before. It was a gamble.

The treaty with America nationalized this year’s midterm elections, which went against the former speaker Tip O’Neil‘s duck that all politics is local. My poll showed I was ahead of my opponent, a 36-year-old incumbent, who personally could only attack me as a wealthy plastic surgeon. I was new to politics and didn’t have a ballot. I fended off his ad hominem attacks with testimonials from patients, like the farmer who lost his thumb in an industrial accident. I made him a new one by transplanting his big toe.
